Forgiveness is not easy

Sometimes you have to take the time

To realize how truly blessed you are

Sometimes you have to make the effort

To learn how to forgive yourself


You will never be perfect

You will always make mistakes

The mistakes of your past

May have haunted you for many years


It is time to let that go

It is time to forgive yourself

It is time to enjoy breathing

Time to begin living


Forgiveness is not easy

No matter who the subject is

Oddly enough, forgiving one’s self

Can be the most difficult of all


This is when you should call upon divine power

When you are not enough, He is

When you cannot forgive, He will

When you are sick & tired of being sick & tired


Let Him give you the power to receive the life He wants you to have

You may never finish your to do, or should do list

But if you are too busy laughing, crying, talking or singing

Then that list will pail into the insignificant thing that it really is anyway

    1. 🙂 Doing well. I found my self in a strange place at the end of July & needed to step back. It was a difficult, but necessary part of my journey.

      Lets just say the poem is very personal, & the realization was late as usual, but timely as always 🙂

      I’m doing much better now, will be posting more, but probably not as much as previously, trying to take life a little easier. Enjoy things instead of putting pressure on myself to do things that are supposed to just be fun.

      1. Glad to hear you are doing well now Chris, It’s good to have you back in our midst. You are right to not put so much pressure on yourself and to just have fun with what you do!
